This Hopped-Out Brown Ale hits the senses with a resiny citrus aroma. It's caramel roasted malt provides a simple sweetness on the backbone. The relationship is a delicate balance between the earthy, citrus hop characteristics combined with a roasted malt presence. As if an IPA and a Brown Ale collided. Delightfully.

Smells like dark fruit. I get a hint of dark cherry on the nose as it warms up. The alcohol stands out a bit, giving off a warming sensation. This brew has a stout sweetness with a nice IPA hop bitterness. It is an usual and enjoyable brew. It is worth a try if you get a chance.

Poured ontap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a light brown coloring, crystal clear, with a foamy, fluffy, off white head. Nose of resinous and grassy hops forward, with a semisweet backbone of roasted nut and chocolate. Flavors are resinous and citrus forward, on a sweet and rich nutty and chocolate backbone. Grapefruit, tangerine, grass, pine pitch, and a subtle sweetness to balance. Smooth, light bodied, with a tangy and cotrus ladened, resinous hops profile. The finish is slick and smooth, with a bitter hops linger.
